Alternative portraits of circadian scientists as clocks, their arms taking the place of the minute and second hands. A chronotype is our sleep/wake pattern as determined by our circadian rhythms, the work explores the dissonance between external time schedules and the bodies own rhythms.

At a photo studio set up at CBMR I photographed researchers’ arms and asked at what time of day they feel they are the most efficient. The prints depict their chosen times, and are displayed consecutively, ranging from 2.17 in the morning to midnight.
